This beetle if I remember correctly is a 1969 model which was imported from Singapore to a village near Quilon in the early eighties and later went to a famous fleet owner in Kottayam. In 2002 or so it went to Bangalore.
I think this car is presently in Hyderabad with a Telengana registration.

Fobby where did you find this? My late uncle (maternal) owned this at one point of time in late 1960s & Early 1970s, if I am not mistaken. It was repainted this colour, when it was with him. Just curious thats all.

Ajay might remember this - it used to be deployed for Lottery Ticket vending around Thampanoor Bus Stand (One of my uncles many mis/ill-conceived business ventures). (Edited in: Just saw your comments)
